Heavy Edit - Dev + Line

For a heavy edit, the first pass will be going through the manuscript focusing on any issues concerning the big picture aspects of your story. I will make marginal comments about plot, structure, scene dynamics, and character development.

For the second pass (after revisions), I will do a line edit. I will make changes directly to your manuscript, focusing on tightening and smoothing out any unclear or confusing passages, as well as looking out for repetition and other style issues.


Includes two passes, style sheet, editorial letter, and a thirty-minute consultation.

Rates start at $.02 per word.
